Looking for FDR suggestions for 17.5TX.

This is the track layout which as you can see (see video) is tight and technical accompanied with a 82 foot long straight.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCFMSryT7k8

Now, in the video below I am using a TRION 17.5 (Japanese) with a 13.5 rotor.. crazy torque, but too much off throttle drag.. Now the speed control is using dynamic hybrid boost turbo (reventon pro 1.1)


The only problem is now my track has decided on doing away with motor timing and esc boost/turbo ect.

In summary we can only run blinky/fixed timing.

I have 20 replacement cans that will be here today in my shipment. I am not sure on the price yet but will have them up on my site in a day or so.

In my case I have been running at FDR 3.72 and I can comfortably hold the motor with my hand after race. So I am going to try 3.65 next.

Should hear from him in a little bit as he's on lunch, haha

At practice yesterday, running a 17.5 TX, my motor fan disconnected itself from the chassis and tore off. I must've run for a long time without one (I drove for about 8 mins). After the run I found out he motor was at 180f on the outside, and about 200 temped on the inside, but I noticed NO motor fade at all. I started te run on a fresh battery doing about 11.7s/11.8s consistently and I finished the run with an 11.8 before I pulled off. This motor is incredible.

Hope not.

I've been using mine for 3 years and haven't updated it. Still plenty fast.

3.3 will be legal soon for VX, VXX, and VX1
There is no 3.0 for the VXX.
3.3 is the initial release version for the VXX
